Show pal and all around crazy gal, Wendy Baker, makes the most fantastic, colorful over the top jewelry of hand painted vintage flowers and costume jewelry components. I make minimalist, understated polymer clay pieces. Totally different, right? Well, maybe not.

I traded a pair of earrings for a handful of her small flower components. I was planning to hold off using them until my creative play-time during the winter, but I couldn't resist. Here are a couple of window pendants I made incorporating Wendy's cute vintage flowers:
